From award-winning writer and playwright Daragh Carville (Being Human, The Smoke, Cherrybomb), the first series of The Bay achieved consolidated audiences of 7 million viewers with a share of 26% across six episodes. Series two begins with Lisa Armstrong at a low ebb, forced to do menial police work whilst she watches Med go from strength to strength. But a new case involving a shocking murder within a loving family brings Lisa unexpectedly back to the front line. She must get under the skin of this new family and prove her worth - to her colleagues, to her family and to herself. Morven Christie (The A Word, The Replacement) returns to lead the cast, alongside Daniel Ryan (Innocent, Home Fires), Lindsey Coulson (Funny Cow, Bulletproof), Imogen King (Clique), Art Parkinson (Game of Thrones, Zoo) and Taheen Modak, who made his professional screen debut in series one. Joining Christie for the second series are; Joe Absolom (A Confession, Doc Martin), James Cosmo (His Dark Materials, The Name of the Rose, Game of Thrones), Stephen Tompkinson (DCI Banks, Trollied), Sharon Small (Trust Me, Mistresses), Sunetra Sarker (Ackley Bridge, Informer) and Owen McDonnell (Killing Eve, My Mother and Other Strangers).
